Can a person fall in love again after breaking up with someone they loved deeply?
Personally I haven't, but it differs from person to person. I think most of us who love someone truly would relate to this that Love just doesn't fade away with time.
May be the pain will be less with time and you will learn to live with that pain, but that love will still remain till your last breath. And that is not wrong. It just is human. Feelings are feelings and they stay with you forever.
When I saw her feeling bad and guilty, I decided to stay away from her. I will continue to love her silently but don't want to be close to her until she feels the same way or she gets married to the person she will love in the future. My love for her wouldn't change and it is unconditional. Love is always unconditional. There is no past tense in love. Will always care for her and her happiness. What else would I need other than seeing her happy? I want that in my life. But if she is happy with someone else, it will sting me every single time to see her with someone else but I will still wish her to be happy. Above all, true love is selfless and wishing the best for the one you love. If it is meant to happen it will happen someday. Till then love in silence is way better. The heart always wants what it wants.
It hurts. It hurts real bad. It stings. There is a pang in your heart every single time you think about them. You care for them that much and you love them that much. You experienced pinnacle of happiness when you were with them, and now when they leave, you experience nadir of sadness. It really hurts because you still care and you will care, even though they are with you or not. Your heart will still care.
But just remember it wasn't easy for them to let you go as well. Sometimes they leave because they can't see you sad. She left me that way and I completely get her view on this. She cared for me as a real friend and I love her even more. It stings me and I feel how much it would have hurt her too. She asked me to stay away for I can move on, little did she know that she was the one whom I genuinely love after my parents. I am still staying away for I want her to be happy and guilt free. I can't see her sad any day.
We all know how much it stings us because we experience it. But we all should know how much it would hurt them too. I really care about her and her happiness still. That is what love and care is all about. If it was just distance and time that would make someone unlove, then love would be an easy thing. It isn't. True love will never fade. It still stings but there is sweetness in that pain and tears are more sweeter.
May be I love her way too much and pushed her away, but it is the only way I know to love her, because she still means the whole world to me. I really have that hope that she is happy and if at all she comes back, she will still be the only princess in my life. If at all everyday in life wanted to ask: "would you like to save today's changes?" World would be an awesome place. But that's what life is all about. We all make mistakes and we learn. But I still have that hope that I won't lose her just because I care and love way too much. May be someday she will understand. Love her loads :'(
Prasanna Venkatesh's answer to Do you still love someone even though you know you can't be together? I am in love with my best friend. He loves me, but he is going abroad for his MBA this august. He says he doesn't want me to wait and he doesn't know his future. I am confused.
